    V-MODA Revolver?

    So...another year goes by...   Any updates on the release date of the V-Moda Revolver?   I'm on the fence about getting a refurb M-100 for $180. I just got the XS today, and I'm loving the lighter bass and cliqfold headband. If the Revolver came out with similar updates anytime in the next 6...

    Enabling analogue line out on Macbook Pro (retina)

    This is a bit of a niche question, but I'll shoot.   I recently acquired a Macbook Pro Retina.   On the specs page (, under "audio", it states:   Support for audio line out (digital/analog)   Image:    ...

    I'd recommend the Headstage Arrow. Real slim design, great feature set, and you really don't need the added power you'd get with a bulkier amp, as the W3s are ridiculously sensitive. The EQ functions are nice to have, and probably sound a good deal better, in terms of basic bass boost, treble...

    Introducing the K550. Built for the studio, engineered for the iPod, and designed with a mature sense of style, these are AKG's sexiest headphones yet.

    Travel Case for AKG K550 (and high quality cable turtle)

    Thanks for your responses!   inobobo - I think I would be too worried about the effects of the cable bending at such sharp angles. My M50 cable stopped transmitting both channels after months of use. I think I'm looking for something more like...

    Travel Case for AKG K550 (and high quality cable turtle)

    Hey there.   I just bought the K550 headphones on Amazon. Now I'm looking for a travel case that would fit the headphones and protect them, mostly for carrying them around in a backpack.   Also, any suggestions for a small cable manager would be appreciated. 3 meters is a bit long for...

    beyerdynamic T5p: Photos and first impressions.

    I'm sure I'll enjoy the bass, but for things like playing video games or certain kinds of electronic music, I'd like a sound more like a subwoofer  on medium volume.   My sources are an iPhone 4S and Macbook Pro. I know there's a ton of EQ apps for the iPhone, but I'd rather have my sound...

    Beyerdynamic T5p - Neutral?

    I was thinking I'd buy the Headstage Arrow HE 12HE 4G and use the bass boost function if I wanted to listen with bass. I'm sure they could handle it. I think they cut the bass down to increase clarity from low powered sources. Amplification is very important to move the drivers enough to create...

    SRH 940 Alternatives

    I'm looking for a neutral, comfortable, closed headphone to be used for music production and listening through a macbook pro and virus ti2 synthesizer. I really like the idea of the SRH 940, but I'm open to other options. Have any suggestions in the $200+ range?

    Portable Headphone Amps + speakers (e.g. soundmatters foxl)

    No, a portable headphone amp isnt going to help much. The problem is likely with your phone's audio output, I know the DROID is far from the king of sound quality   All I know is the Cowon J3 playing FLAC to the foxlv2 sounds great
